Arabbit, 2017, 5 mn 35

Production : Erik Popolöff

Somewhere between waking dream and the quest for another “I”, Zee tries to reveal the presence of Arabbit... a mysterious rabbit-man. This highly polished and poetic world — though imbued with a disquieting lulled strangeness-- is inspired by the work of Axel van der Waal, a Lille artist, through its themes (cycles, repetition, animality) and its visuals. In it, Axel van der Waal plays the part of Zee, a human character, while Arabbit comes to life under one of the “heads” which form the artist’s visual work. RB-V

Labor, 2016, 3 mn 30

Labor: exhausting work, pain, even suffering, but also falling and collapse. These three ideas are brought together in this video which presents a lumberjack at work, felling trees, a task as real as it is metaphorical. Suggesting a look, sketching a movement and the first words of a narrative: my praxis is defined above all by the paths it leaves open to interpretation. A story, a project, there’s always somewhere to start. But the sequel is moving, it varies with everyone. MS
